Bike stand/rack choices

What are you guys using for a display stand for your vintage bikes. I don't like leaning the Paramount against the wall and have been looking for a display stands. Iím not looking for one to work on the bike with.

I just use one of those rubber coated deals that hook on to the down tube and under the bottom bracket, like the Sunlite. Twenty bucks at my LBS. Not very fancy, but they work OK.

I've already got one of those type. It's a bit awkward to use sometimes. I like the type that allows the bike to have both tires on the ground.

I prefer the Feedback Rakk Storage Stand.

I have the Rubbermaid track system available at Lowes in the current apartment. They have a bicycle specific attachment that goes on the track. It's not really the most aesthetically pleasing thing, but it freed up a lot of space in the apartment.

I found some clear plexiglass/polycarbonite stands on JensonUSA for around $30.00. I may try one. Certainly would not be anything but a display stand.

I use what I've picked up over time, photos pending:

2-bike wall rack from Target, free-standing, $30
2-bike wall rack from Ross, leans against the wall, $20
2 x 2-bike floor-ceiling racks from LBS clearance, $100
1-bike vertical wall hook/pad from LBS clearance, $10
1-bike temp floor stand from PBK, $9
6-bike playground rack from CL, $15, no room for it, stored.

I don't store any bikes on the floor, part of the deal with Mrs. Tunes.

I use one of these.

It works great, and is super sturdy. Sometimes they put them on sale, and with discounts can be had cheap. I got mine for a little under $20.

Best rack ever.

That looks really nice... With around 30 bikes now, I think that may fit the bill. I like that it has wheels of its own.

IT is nice - very sturdy, and can be carefully moved.
